Stu Pepper, retiring to Lee County, Florida, continues to seek FBI admission of wrong doing in covering up the murder of a young man by a police officer, in 1984.
Stu Pepper, points out that there is no statute of limitations on conspiracy to cover-up a murder.
Stu Pepper, insists police violence is "systemic sadism."
When Attorney Stu Pepper decided to take on a new client and represent the Thacker family, Kevin was dead. His mother and father were alive. He won a civil lawsuit for them. Then, things went 1984 on him.
As you may recall, there was a book titled 1984 by George Orwell that foresaw a totalaritarian dictatorship that stays in power through mind-control. It need not admit any wrong-doing because it controls what people remember. Routinely, through an administative agency of the government, history - which is kept in a central database - is redefined to support the current facts the government insists are real, though they are the opposite of the facts the government insisted were real the day before. That's 1984.
Around the year 1984, Stu Pepper won the lawsuit. It was a civil action, so he had to prove the facts of the case by a "proponderance of the evidence," which means the jurors had to find it more likely than not that his evidence was true.
Criminal cases are harder to prove than civil cases. If a prosecutor had brought murder charges against the police officer for killing the Thackers' child - something that would have been highly unusual in the year 1984 - he (almost likely a prosecutor in 1984 would have been male) would have had to prove the facts of the case against the police officer "beyond a reasonable doubt." Criminal law demands great certainty; not 100% certainty. That's why there are multiple layers of appeals, so more people can express doubt about the facts before someone is locked up for life or killed by the state.
That's court. That's due process. Everyone has the right to a trial and appeals and intervention by the Innocence Project (if appropriate) before accepting life in prison or imposition of a death sentence. And, every prosecutor has the right to determine whether to bring a case before a grand jury and then bring a defendant to trial. Those rights - of due process, equal protection of the law, and prosecutorial discretion - are eviscerated when a police officer, with badge and gun, acts as judge, jury, and executioner.
Stu Pepper proved, in civil court, by a preponderance of the evidence, that a police officer murdered a young man.
Had a prosecutor taken the same case and proved the same facts beyond a reasonable doubt, the criminal verdict could then have been used to prove the case in civil court because the standard of proof is lower in civil court; just a "preponderance of the evidence."
Having proven the officer liable for murder in a civil court first, the civil court decision - because it is based on a lower more-easily established standard of proof - cannot be used as proof in a criminal trial. So, a federal prosecutor, with the assistance of the FBI, would have to prove the case again, beyond a reasonable doubt.
Instead of bringing murder charges against the police officer who had been found liable in civil court for killing the Thackers' child, the Department of Justice used the FBI to fabricate evidence to exonerate the police officer.
On Wednesday, June 17, 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis and the aftermath of killings of civilians by police in Minneapolis and Atlanta, the resulting fire this time, and the subsequent rising of hope that comes with peaceful non-violent protest, Stu came on Zoom and started telling us about this case.
All of the family, a police family, have passed away. Stu is the only one left to see justice done, to see the FBI held accountable.

If you are the type who likes to come to meetings at least somewhat prepared.
Maybe even knowing the answers before the questions are asked.
Here are some sources for more information and insight into this matter.
One of the most fun ways to start researching a complicated topic is with a dramatic presentation. Stu spent his own money contacting Hollywood and getting a movie made about this case. It is called The Coverup, now available at no additional cost for members of Amazon Prime. The link is https://www.amazon.com/Coverup-Gabriel-Mann/dp/B07L369W5B.
Stu has created a website where you can examine the evidence and begin to decide, by a prepondance of the evidence and beyond a reasonable doubt, what you think about this case. The website about the coverup is at: https://thecoverup.net/.
Finally, Stu explains his theory of the FBI coverup in a new YouTube video at: https://youtu.be/DfU4RAyUC4w.
Stu is not hiding behind some advertising agency or charity. He has his contact information on his website at: https://thecoverup.net/.
Share your thoughts with him, now.
then, join the wider conversation and share your thoughts with us on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) on Zoom at: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81568252578?pwd=MWN4TTVqQTdWaERQUXBWeEsyTDZLdz09.

By the way, on this website I have not buried the styles in a separate CSS file. Instead, style coding is here for anyone to learn from. Gratifyingly, I have been told by an educator for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida that women in high school who are learning to code have used this website for demonstration purposes. It may not be perfect, but it works. Glad I could help!
